Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.

Naked time

Lots of intense fights, scares and some naked scenes as the games of course and the big cities in the movie provide the consumerism. I'm no RE evil game fan, but for big fans I recommend Phelan Porteus remaining RE reviews so let's hope they stay up after it seems to hit copyright strikes.

This title has:

Too much violence
Too much sex
Too much consumerism
